At 1st Garfield we are on mission with God, who is calling a lost and dying world to Himself. We go about this in various ways, including:
LOCAL OUTREACH – We reach out to families in our community through special events, through our children and youth programs, and by simply being mission minded as our members go about their daily business.
INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS – We support international missions and missionaries through the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention and by sending out short term mission teams. We also have connections with two great mission ministries: Cross Vision International Missions and Neighbors to Nations.
NORTH AMERICAN MISSIONS – We support North American missions and missionaries through the North American Mission Board, and the Arkansas Baptist State Convention. We are also currently partnering with Aviator Church in Wichita, KS and Charles River Church in Boston, MA. We send short term mission teams to work with them and reach their communities and they in turn minister to us and our community.
CHURCH PLANTING – We currently sponsor New Day Fellowship, a mission church in our neighboring town of Eureka Springs, AR.
